Description

(Reference number: 73605) Cross the gangplank onto this incredible floating home near the Thames. Moored just a couple of blocks from Tower Bridge, this former 1930s steel barge is a ten-minute walk from the Tower of London. The top deck has been converted into a long, open living space with views of St Katharine Docks Marina from the huge windows. We love the semi-outdoor dining room, housed in a glass atrium-style space to the rear of the ship, with seating for ten. Choose to relax in the stylish white lounge on the upper deck, or head downstairs to the snug with its u-shaped sofa around a striking suspended fireplace. Bedrooms are on the lower deck, but that doesn’t mean dark cabins with tiny portholes. Spacious rooms have walls of windows and if there are portholes, they’re the size of a bass drum, letting in tonnes of natural light. If you manage to bag the master bedroom, its ensuite comes with a sauna. Welcome aboard, matey! Home truths: * This home is a former boat, floating in St Katharine Docks Marina, so you may feel some gentle movement from time to time * The fourth and fifth bedrooms share a bathroom * The fireplace is stunning, but purely for decoration and not operational * Wifi signal can be a bit weak on the lower deck * There is no television in this home, but there is a pull-down screen and projector in the master bedroom * The home is currently up for sale so potential buyers may be shown around, but you will be given advance warning * There is bike storage on the upper deck – or alternatively, there's a Santander Cycles bike-sharing station just down the road
